Engineer's note: What's more important than high resolution audio?

Inspired by legends

Choose your drumming by style, not by the brand
Drum Tree is organised according to drumming style and features kits organised to suit over 26 different genres. Under the interface's tree branches you'll find three categories. 'Greatest hits' with rock, pop and soul kits, 'Historic jazz' with kits from big band to 60s jazz, and 'Contemporary jazz' with kits for modern and hip-hop jazz. The tree interface lets you quickly select between different styles, so you don't need to know your hero's favourite snare to get their sound.
Drum Tree gives you access to a wide collection of rare drum kits, recorded with carefully chosen microphones. The library features a huge collection of options, including 41 varieties of snare and 67 types of cymbal. There's a total of 185 different instruments to choose from with over 8,000 samples. That's 17GB of first-class audio, played by first-class musicians and mixed by a first-class engineer. Getting the right sound for style and genre are only a few clicks away.
dedemicsWe all have heroes and, by sparing no production expense, we wanted to capture legendary style and sound with the utmost respect. We wanted you to load Drum Tree and hear the techniques and atmosphere of songs we all know and love.
Engineer's note: Why start with classic songs rather than drum brands?
tumblr_o3b6ucpotn1v9ew94o1_1280Drum Tree is a 96khz 24-bit library which means it's presented to you in incredible clarity. It can also be used in 44.1kHz or 48kHz, depending on the needs of your project. We recommend 96kHz to maintain its original quality.

PREMIER Mastering Studio has been the studio of choice for Sony, Universal, and Warner as well as Yamaha, Honda, and Konami.
tumblr_o3wqqgypmj1v9ew94o1_1200Drum Tree was recorded by a dedicated sound engineer with over 20 years' experience, using hand-picked analogue gear. This means you can rely on the library in confidence without the need for additional plugins.
Lavry Gold AD122-96I mixed classic recording methods with the best of modern digital. This let me capture the idiosyncratic sounds of classic recordings and present them using the newest and best equipment. I used multiple Lavry AD122-96 for recording and mastering.
Western Electric TubesI added my own secrets. For example, I added a sweet and smooth flavour to some vintage kits with an original custom box of Western Electric tubes. It's one of my favourite pieces of gear and a key to that saturated analogue sound.
Cymbal on SnareI wanted to include options for every style. For example, I included recordings not only of simple snares but also plenty of brush work. Snares, cymbals and tambourines are available with multiple effects and unusual striking techniques.
